Upcoming Lawsuit Court Appearance and Bankruptcy
January 12th, 2014 by Questions
I have my first court appearance this March as I’m being sued for an at-fault car accident which the defendant is claiming 1 million dollars in damages for.
About a month ago after speaking to a lawyer and Licensed Insolvency Trustee I was initially told if I file for bankruptcy (due to unrelated debts unpaid) before the court appearance I would not be liable for the defendants claim.
I just got back from speaking to my trustee and they told me I can only file for bankruptcy AFTER a judgement has been made at the court appearance.
I thought I could file for bankruptcy to close this lawsuit against me as I have absolutely no money or assets and I’m already owing. What happened?
